Maybe They Threatened to Kidnap Huma This Time!
Reaganite Republican ^ | October 16, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Or: since when does a Clinton take the fall for anybody...?

Just as the Obama regime and Hillary's rudderless State Department were slipping into all-out war over who's to blame for serial incompetence in Libya (and after Axelrod was raked-over-the coals on Fox News Sunday re. Administration stonewalling on Benghazigate and the incompatible accounts of Susan Rice, Hillary, Biden, and Obama), suddenly it appears Hillary has attempted to take the fall while speaking to reporters in Peru... but why?

Isn't she the one that proclaimed unambiguously in the 2008 debates that 'the buck stops in the Oval Office'? And aren't both her and her husband about the most self-serving people on the planet?  After first saying that the White House fairy-tale about a 'protest' being behind the Benghazi attack was never the State Department's assessment, NOW she says the buck stops
with her- huh?

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton most certainly does bear considerable responsibility for the death of four Americans and a damaging intelligence loss, and it's refreshing to see anybody in this vile regime take responsibility for anything. But that's not the same as wanting us to think that the White House didn't turn down repeated requests for additional security at the Benghazi consulate or Obama didn't intentionally mislead us all as to the cause of the 9/11/2012 attack for weeks.

Hillary also covered for UN Ambassador Susan Rice's BS version of events, blaming her blatantly misleading prior statements on 'the fog of war'... even though it's known that both Clintons bear a considerable grudge against Rice due to early support for Obama '08 (she served in the Clinton Administration).

Alas, recall that rumor where Team Obama supposedly threatened Chelsea Clinton's life in order to keep Bubba quiet in 2008 re. Obama's eligibility -or lack thereof- after he let it slip-out he 'knows' that Obama is 'not qualified' to be president?

Yesterday's abrupt, unexpected 180° indeed evokes memories of Hillary's surprising withdrawal from those 2008 Dem primaries ('surprising' unless you were already aware that recalcitrant Hillary delegates -particularly blacks- were threatened right on the Convention floor in Denver if they didn't switch their support from to Obama, and quick... while bad things (like a dirt nap) happened to some of those who didn't, for example
Stephanie Tubbs-Jones

Anybody seen Huma around lately?

Smitty @ The Other McCain:

Stunned. Still nothing at HillBuzz. Wow. I mean, Hillary permitted herself to be set on a shelf in 2008, and now this? 

One can only speculate on the nature of the dirt #OccupyResoluteDesk has on her, to twist out that kind of
mea culpa from Hillary...

As for Hill's accounting of her own motivations, she says she's trying to 'avoid any game of political gotcha'... when just a few days ago her State Department directly contradicted WH lies and forced Obama to drop the farcical 'movie caused it' bit right then and there...

Doug Ross @Journal:

"Political gotcha"?  An Ambassador is dead and the administration trotted out a series of lies from the outset.

And the key questions remain unanswered:

• Who ordered security removed from Ambassador Stevens when he and other personnel were requesting more security?

• Who made up the story about the video and the non-protest in Libya?

• And why were the false stories promoted for weeks on end?

Four Americans are dead and more than a month has elapsed during which the administration has lied, evaded and misdirected.

Perhaps a few of these questions will be asked in in the remaining presidential debates.
Dare to dream.

Considering that tonight's debate concerns foreign policy, this topic surely warrants further discussion,  and soon...
wouldn't you say, Mitt?

I wonder what, if anything the PUMA group has to say about Hillary ‘falling on the sword’.

If the kenyan is in the WH next year, he will be there until he is replaced by another caesar.

I think she is considering this her “oliver North” moment. She is simply trying to make herself appear honorable after lying to us for a month. Trust me, after Obama loses the election she will throw him under the biggest bus we have ever seen.

Have said since 2004 that it had to be blackmail. And it must be a shocker that Bubba would shut up.

Obama now has given her a death blow.

Is she capable of turning on him? Is Bubba?

Kinda reminds you of Janet Reno...though this is even's intenational.

She’s not really throwing herself under the bus. She’s blaming “the fog of war” for why they didn’t really know what happened.

“Hillary is showing “leadership” by accepting blame.”

Oh, Baloney! She’s still blaming “the fog of war”, while trying to rescue her reputation.

Think of it this way

This is the ULTIMATE revenge against Barry.
The women, in particular, will be furious that MaoBama let/forced her to take the fall for his incompetence.
She will gladly fall on the sword, knowing that this damages his standing with a core and needful voting block.
She looks like Joan of Arc and her esteem rises among all people, especially WOMEN

Either blackmail by the Chicago thugs or some financial pay-off (Hillary’s campaign debt from ‘08) went down before Hillary took the fall for Obama. What a pus-pocket the Democrat party is on this nation’s rump!

Why are there never any consequences when a Clinton excepts responsibility for a major screwup. Nothing ever happens to them.

This goes much deeper than just political exposure or blackmail. Hillary is just a puppet, like both sides of the political fence, of the people she and Obama met in 2008 at the Marriott in Chantilly VA.

These are the same people behind the Fed Reserve and can collapse this country instantly by just refusing to purchase our t-bills at auction. It will happen when the timing is correct for them, most likely prior to the election.

I agree 100%. HRC has taken the pressure off herself with her “the buck stops with me...” statement. She makes Obama look like a cad for letting her do this AND it answers none of the important quesitons about the POTUS and Susan Rice lying for a week. McCain et al amready have responded that HRC’s statement does nothing to absolve Obama of having to answer for lying.

The CLintons know exactly what they are doing.

You got it! And women are leaning more and more towards ROmney now, so HRC has helped Romney as well as herself. And you can bet she intended that.

I think your answer is better than all the rumor-mongering here. Clinton didn’t take responsibility - if she had she would have resigned in disgrace and joined a nunnery. Within the same interview, she is seen laughing and joking with the journalist. Now that she’s said “she’s responsible,” the media expects us all to move on.

But will we?

Let's take a wild guess that Hillary's statement is simply a setup for the debate. Obama will simply refuse to answer anything about Libya.

"Leadership is delegating or something like that might be his theme."Guess he never heard of Washington.....Lincoln....Truman....Churchill...Patton....or Eisenhower..

She’ll take responsibility up to a point.
She’s leaving her job anyway, so why not?


IMHO all of them are on the same page now, re. ‘we should wait until the investigation is completed’ before drawing conclusions or making ‘adjustments’ -as Axelrod put it- because then NOTHING happens to ANYbody on Team Obama until after the election... the whole Administration will be stalling, basically

Or he may use that famous cop-out beloved by crooked lawyers: “I can’t comment on an ongoing investigation.” Hillary & Obama have managed to climb to the top of the slag heap by using that old excuse.

They revolt me.

One thought is Hillary assumed the mantle of responsibility witHout Obama giving the okay. This makes Obama look week. If so, her timing is perfect.
